The middle sister of the talented Dufour-Lapointe trio, Chloé was inspired to get into mogul skiing at the age of 10 after watching older sister Maxime compete for two years. Chloé idolized Canadian Moguls legend Jennifer Heil and hoped to one day train and compete alongside her.
That moment would happen in 2007 when Chloé would be named to the Canadian team at just 16 years of age. Two years later, Chloé competed in her first Olympic Games in 2010 with Heil as her teammate and with her sisters, Maxime and Justine, watching along. An impressive fifth place finish at those Games would be a sign of things to come for the future.
Four years later, the Dufour-Lapointe sisters would become Olympians together and give the world one of the most heartwarming memories from the 2014 Olympic Games: two of the sisters sharing an Olympic podium. Chloé stepped onto the podium to claim her silver medal, held Justine’s hand as she stood atop the podium as the gold medallist, and they sang the national anthem together, with tears streaming down their faces.
In 2016 while competing at the FIS Freestyle Ski World Cup in Val Saint-Côme, the trio of sisters swept the podium – Justine in first, Chloé in second, and Maxime in third – creating a historic moment never before seen in the sport with three siblings all standing on the podium together.
Chloé also captured the first FIS Crystal Globe of her career in 2016 after battling it out on the leaderboard with Justine.
These girls aren’t just three of the best freestyle skiers in the world though. The Dufour-Lapointe’s share a love and passion for everything fashion related, shoes and cosmetics.
